Catherine Alban Jones
CLAHRC Fellow 2019
Cathy Alban Jones Cathy Alban Jones is a Nurse Consultant at St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich. She has been working in palliative and end of life care for over 25 years both in hospital and hospice. She sees patients with both malignant and non malignant diseases and has been increasingly aware of, and interested in the impact of fatigue, a prevalent symptom, on these patients and their families. For the CLAHRC Fellowship Cathy will be looking at the perception and understanding of patient fatigue among hospice staff and the impact on them of caring for patients with fatigue. She is hoping to develop this further in the future to consider the impact of patient fatigue on family carers.
